Daily Mail: ‘Rupee’ eyeing riches at The Meadows

Two-time G1 winner Aston Rupee is favoured to win his heat of the G1 TAB Australian Cup tonight, but dual G1 winner Qwara Bale and G1 Melbourne Cup runner-up Lala Kiwi are formidable foes.

Another highlight at The Meadows will be Listed Western Districts Derby winner Paddy Wants Pats facing dual G1 winner Jungle Deuce.

Four heats of the G1 TAB Fanta Bale Super Stayers include last year’s champion Stanley Road and three-time G1 winner Gypsy Wyong.

📢 THE WATCHDOG’S $10 INVESTMENT 📢
📅 Saturday 19 February

💰 $3 Win – HANK THE HUSTLER
📍 The Meadows 🏁 Race 1 🔲 Box 3 📏 725m ⏱ 6:38pm
TAB fixed odds: $4 Win

The Watchdog says
🎤 : He loves racing around The Meadows and he should be able to find the rail soon after box rise and get a nice sit. There are a couple of runners who are suspect over this journey and ‘Hank’ should be able to settle in front of STANLEY ROAD (7), so with a clear passage, he will get every chance to score.

👀 Must Watch Race 👀

TAB Australian Cup Heat 3

📍 The Meadows 🏁 Race 7
📏 525m ⏱ 8:38pm

The Watchdog says 🎤: ASTON RUPEE (3) – now a two-time Group 1 winner – is under the odds, but he should still be winning. Along with dual Group 1 winner QWARA BALE (1) and Group 1 Melbourne Cup runner-up LALA KIWI (2), we have included ENVY TO BURN (4) and SPECIAL TALENT (5) for second in the hope of securing some value.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview 🎤:

The champion ASTON RUPEE (3) obliterated a star line-up when capturing his second Group 1 in the TAB Temlee here last Saturday night and he will be looking to advance to another big final. He hasn’t been done any favours as he has to contend with Group 1 Melbourne Cup runner-up LALA KIWI (2) and multiple Group-race winner QWARA BALE (1). ‘Qwara’ and ‘Lala’ are expected to hold the lead and dictate terms, and if ‘Rupee’ can step like he did last Saturday night, he should be able to put himself into contention as they navigate the bend, and he will prove hard to hold out. BOSTON GARDEN (6) and HEBRIDEAN BLACK (8) both have massive engines and are desperate for the inside, so if they manage to find the fence early, they could cause an upset.

The Watchdog’s selections: 3 – 2 – 1 – 5

💰 $3 Win – HILL TOP JACK
📍 The Meadows 🏁 Race 10 🔲 Box 2 📏 525m ⏱ 9:40pm
TAB fixed odds: $4 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666542487/race/10


The Watchdog says
🎤 : He is the Group 2 Launceston Cup winner, and he appears drawn to get the gun run tonight. TYPHOON SAMMY (1) and COMPLIANCE (3) are expected to set a cracking pace, so he should get a nice run through at the bend and be there to pounce in the middle stages. He is clearly the strongest of the top-three elects in the run home, and a clear run can see him get the job done.

💰 $2 Win – DECIMATE
📍 The Meadows 🏁 Race 11 🔲 Box 6 📏 525m ⏱ 10:00pm
TAB fixed odds: $8 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666542487/race/11


The Watchdog says
🎤 : ASTON TITAN (2) is going to be very hard to beat, however DECIMATE (6) has turned in some stellar performances of late and with a clean getaway, he should be able to put himself into contention at the first bend. He has the ability to go sub 29.75sec and at the price, he appears to be value.
